about the pickle that president obama is in with regard to syria. you two in the middle, the democrats know, especially you, cornell, that president obama beat hillary clinton, who was unbeatable, everyone thought, in 2008 in part because of the fact that he was an anti-war candidate against iraq. now he finds himself in a position where this could be a really serious situation with chemical weapons in syria. and there could be mounting pressure, internationally, to get involved. >> it is a pickle. because on the one side, your sort of the basically the democratic party and not just the democratic party, but americans broadly do not want troops on the ground and bombing in syria. once we start bombing, we kind of own part of the situation there. so there's a tough place. but at the same time, when, if they are using chemical weapons against their own people, the president is going to have to make the case against the american people that they have to decide their own fate. however, there's got to be rules of engagement and they've crossed the line. >> talk to me about the left. if the
toward a positive resolution? >> president obama and congressional democrats have been trying to make sure that voters have two distinct choices. they clearly chose president obama and democrats. they want to continue to rebuild this economy from the middle class out. they want to make sure when it comes to housing everybody has an opportunity to live the american gene and have a safe and secure roof over their heads. they want access to affordable healthcare. they want to make sure that they have strong retirement security and preserve our safety net program. those are the things that democrats have been fighting for, particularly relating for the economy. we want to take a common sense and balance approach that deals with targeted spending cuts as well as closing tax loopholes for the wealthiest americans. we need republicans to join us. they seem to be mired in extremism. to the best evidence as last week's the rnc meeting where they returned to the scene of the crime. we are expanding our map. they had their meeting at the hotel where mitt romney's so- called victory party was. th

"the tonight show" starring president obama. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. the same week our government took the unprecedented action of shuttering 19 of our embassies in response to what we have been told was a serious and credible threat of terrorism, the president the sat down with funny man jay leno. bypassing the white house press core, used the popular late night show to make his first public comments on the new global terror threat. >> for all progress we have made,
. and president obama and eric holder seems to weigh in only when it fits their race narrative. i. e., if i had a son, you know the rest. two murders, likely motivated by race -- >> i think it is safe to say that there is very little white on black violence. it is usually black on black violence, so when you say it happens, it doesn't happen all that often. >> but the black on white happens at a far greater rate than white on black? >> yes, but it is still a small percentage on murders that are done. usually it is between minorities. >> can i ask you, is it a very high percentage of white on black crime? we heard president obama weigh in on a couple of white on black crimes. >> i understand that -- first of all, i don't think that anybody ought to weigh in on the crimes to begin with, but if you're going to weigh in on them it seems to me you ought to balance the scales. like al sharpton, jesse jackson did do it, is to weigh on one, which is the opposite. clear the slate, everybody shut up. >> that is the problem, it is called race poker. here is my chip, which is a white/hispanic on black crim

, president obama calls out republicans. late this afternoon, the president gave a news conference at the white house. he strongly defended his health care law, and he slammed republican extremists for their threat to shut down the government if obama care isn't defunded. >> between october 1st into march, there will be an open enrollment period in which millions of americans for the first time are going to be able to get affordable health care. now i think the really interesting question is why it is that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail, their number one priority. the one unifying principle in the republican party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don't have health care. >> they are holy grail. their number one priority. >> the notion is simply that those 30 million people or the 150 million who are benefitting from the other aspects of affordable care will be better off without it. that's their assertion. not backed by fact, not backed by any evidence. that's just become an ide

't be surprise fed the president doesn't go ahead and sign the repeal of obama scare. which sounds just delusional. then though, he was very wise. he made -- used his inside voice and sounded very reasonable when he talked about how they could shift the blame to obama. let's take a listen. >> it goes forward. president obama, harry reid, will scream and holler that mean nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the government. and at that point, republicans have to do something we haven't done in a long time. we have to win the argument. they stand up and say, we voted to keep the government open. why is president obama threatening to shut the government down. force it down the throat mster can people. >> you notice he started with a much lowerer tone. like he is trying to sound reasonable. >> when you are suggesting something as dramatic as shutting down the government, i suspect the democrats in congress are fine with him trying to win that argument. last time the republicans shut down the government, that didn't go quite so well for them. >> that's not quite true. let's check th

stories that continue to eat into the second half of the obama presidency. as harry truman said if you want a friend in washington, get a dog. president obama did so this week with the addition of sunny, another portuguese water dog, companion to bo and one of the few bright spots in the dog days of summer. joining me today, correspondent for "the guardian" anna marie cox and former director of speech writing for the president -- i can't get the words out, i'm so excited, columnist for the daily beast and co-founder of fenway strategies, jon favreau and "washington post" columnist and msnbc political columnist eugene robinson. joining us now is chuck todd who is also, of course, host of msnbc's "the daily rundown." before we get into the actual policy here, i want to talk about the sort of bird's-eye view as far as what the president is doing on this great middle class tour if you will. to me it seems like he's trying to build up as much political capital as possible before he gets back to washington. what do you think he's trying to do? >> i think he's trying to talk about what people

international response is needed. while the house said today that president obama is still weighing what ha response will be, it does not include regime change. >> the options that we are considering are not about regime change. they are about responding to a clear violation of an international standard that prohibits the use of chemical weapons. mass death, the killing of innocent women and children, has to be responded to. >> however, even as it made its case, the white house said there is no military solution to syria, only a political one. let's get right to nbc chief white house correspondent chuck todd, host of the daily rundown. we're still hearing the white house say they are mulling and considering action. is your read right now the idea of military strikes is pretty much a done deal? >> it's not about if. it's about what kind i have strike is it going to be. if there is a debate that's left that's being had inside the administration, joy, it has to do with, okay, if you do this, are you going to hit them hard enough he doesn't do it again. if he does use chemical weapons again, ar
-called n word's use. people like mr. obama, people like oprah winfrey if they were wanting to lead, they would help push that word outside of the scope of normal discourse. even if it means calling out the kanye west or other so-called hip people telling everyone it's never appropriate. but, again, even the use of the "n" word isn't a factor in deciding whether or not people are going to attain their objectives. it's not a function of the unemployment rate. it's not a function of the wealth and asset creations that are occurring in black and white america. >> laura: immitt thrill and the trayvon martin case. that kind of took me aback, professor. do you think the emit til case given what that meant to black people where a young man was systematically murdered for his supposed role for this controversy in the south in the mid 50s? that's the same as trayvon martin? >> first of all, let me correct some things. resume sites appear african-americans addresses less likely to get a job. disparity in income and wealth. this idea that race is irrelevant in people's lives is nonsense. we se
. let me start tonight with this. remember what president obama said about the republicans about how their endless symbolic votes to kill obama care are now part of american law, by the way, don't constitute an economic plan? well, they didn't get the word. before the congress left for a five-week vacation today, they had one last piece of business to attend to. it wasn't creating jobs. it was another vote to kill obama care. if you're scoring this at home, it's the 40th time the republican-led house voted to of repeal is, defund or cripple the law. it is government by tantrum meaningless. meaningless measures, meaningless roll calls, meaningless speeches as they say down in texas, it's all hat and no cattle. republicans are united against obama care when it comes to votes like this one, but a warring faction of tea party republicans led by ted cruz of texas are making it very real threat to shut down the u.s. government if the law is not killed. apparently the strategy is being lambasted as silly, dumb, unachievable and political suicide. and the people saying those words are not de
